Trains, Planes and Automobiles, or Something for the boys

The New Challenge has now started over on
It was my turn to chose the winner, which was really hard and I'm thinking we should start a top three or even a top five!! (what d'you think?) So thank you to all those of you who entered, we really did have some fabulous cards and other makes using my sketch, not so many entries, as I know 'sketches' aren't quite so easy, so for this fortnight's Challenge over on Quirky Crafts Anne has chosen...(drum roll please Sid!)

Trains, Planes, and Automobiles
Boys and their Toys (no rude stuff please!)
anything with a masculine theme to it!

We're hoping loads of you will put those thinking caps on and come and join us!!
This is my DT card for the challenge. I've gone with the mad Madison again and a cupcake topped with a racing car! I hope it's made of sugar icing!

Once again the lovely Niki from...
has very kindly agreed to sponsor us for the next Fortnightly Challenge. Pop over and have a look at Niki's 'Limited Runs Digi' images, enter the challenge to be in with a chance to win three digi 's of your choice!
Ok. It's not easy having a girl with an axe and putting her on a card! But I've grown very fond of Madison, one of the Sister's Grim. (Yep, she has sisters!) Usually she's dark and Gothic but she can be sweet and sugary in a sickly sort of way!
I've used Pink Petticoat Papers, my Nesties to cut the scallop circles, couple of Auntie Brenda's Buttons from my button tin and of course, my Promakers to do all the colouring, except the 'skin', where I used my Copic pens (still haven't got any skin Promakers!) Of course all the fonts are freebies. The first one is called CK Alis Hand Official and has a link in the post below thisone (go on, scroll down!) and the 'Happy Birthday' you can see inside the card, (great isn't it!!) is called 'You Wish You Were Shirley" ! Yes, honest...(who thinks up these names!?) and you can download it for free from HEREThe 'boxes' I've used on the card can all be made on your computer, and with a bit of fiddling you can easily get the words to fit inside too!
I've also done a couple of other 'things' with a guy theme. A digi scrapbook page that I did in My Craft Studio, but I'm still trying to work out how to put it into a file that blogger can read! So, if they're not here now, they'll either be here later or on another post during the week to remind you to come and join in with the Challenge!
That's it from me!! I'm not here, so this post should appear by magic! I'll be back later to correct all the smelling mistakes and add any links I've forgotten!! do it all over again!! Bye for now!! Oh, just thought of something!! Quirky Crafts are having a DT call, so come over to the Challenge blog and join in that too!!
